Northern Idaho’s natural beauty shrouds tales of gamblers, prostitutes and violent prospectors. Illegal gambling, excessive drinking and vicious disputes were commonplace from Coeur d’Alene to Kellogg. Bordellos lined the streets, and some tempted soldiers mysteriously never returned to Fort Sherman. Former Wallace mayor Herman Rossi shot a man in cold blood in front of numerous witnesses and was somehow found not guilty. One mining dispute led to the gruesome murder of Idaho’s ex-governor Steunenberg. Legendary Wyatt Earp lived in the valley until he got caught claim jumping in Murray. Author Deb Cuyle exposes accounts of Coeur d’Alene and the Silver Valley’s debauchery, secrets and sin.
